9:02 pm
would lead us to believe that we are on a perfectly fine course. rishaad: when janet yellen talks, people listen. markets have been. market participants in particular. david: dovish in a lot of ways. the short version of the reaction we are seeing, equities mixed, rally in the bond market, dollar week, gold on an absolute taylor. absolute tear. i want to talk about the dot -p plot. for those who may not be what may look like a game of backgammon. officials see the fund rate by those times that you see on the x axis.
9:03 pm
those represent the six that see just one rate hike for the rest of the year. the last project in march was one. the slope of the orange line is flatter, the pace of rate hike projected to be more gradual. right, you can get that dot plot. ofyou want to get a sense where the markets are projecting those rates to be, you run the fed funds rate. we just heard from janet yellen and the soundbite that july is live, but the markets don't think so, less than a 6% chance.
9:04 pm
fact, 40% for a rate hike in december. now, we talked about equities here. want to mention is weak dollar, a drop in the dollar index overnight. 94.51, despite money coming back into the u.s. treasury, 10 year yields at 1.56, down one basins s point. can we get gold up? i will get gold up for you. seven days in a row, there we go, a dollar short of $1300. that is the august future, by the way.

9:07 pm
27 percent of the respondents to our survey said this month, and 55% said next month. there is good reason to think it could be next month. as you were discussing, this would allow the boj to see what happens with the brexit vote next week and the risk to the stronger yen, and also what inpens in the election japan, the upper house election , and risk not getting involved in that election, and also what happens with the fed, so waiting would allow that and andw it to not the ploy have it wasted, so to speak, if the brexit vote goes that way and there is further strengthening in the yen. 27% of the people we said they could happen today. there is still pressure. you have othero have
9:08 pm

9:15 pm
conditions ahead of an event where it's difficult to analyze risk? us tos will not cause change how we position portfolios. the news was in the jobs report today. in the lower inflation expectations in the marketplace. the news was in slower corporate earnings, so there are fundamentals that are causing us to change the way we position our portfolios. rishaad: most investors would associate rate hikes with a great economy. my next guest thinks rate hikes go up because of inflation. he joins us now from singapore. what is the thinking here? >> good morning. is the analogy that the u.s. economy is like a botox by..my field
9:16 pm
on the outside it looks good, but the cracks are showing, therefore we could see more risk aversion. rishaad: we are seeing signs of inflation. that is one of the central colors of fed policy, the containment -- central pillars of fed policy, the containment of prices. the fed would be forced into tightening monetary policy in a weakening economy, and that is the dilemma. that is why i mentioned that the u.s. is increasingly like a botox economy in that everything else is artificially propped up. over time, that would put some pressure on to wages and inflationary expectations in the u.s..
9:17 pm
hand, the bond market to you we are in a low growth environment. political risks in the u.s. and the brexit vote could mean two further complications. global growth is slowing, but you still have some price pressure, so that makes it difficult for the fed. the fed is in a very difficult position. this is why janet yellen has been flip-flopping. what goldcreasingly is showing us as well, the market is worried about the potential for central-bank policy mistakes. rishaad: what happens? you are saying that brexit is important. this vote of discontent, as you put it. that as important will be the stress tests coming up. tell me about that. look, the 23rd of june, the
9:18 pm
theed states is releasing federal reserve stress test, and we could see more stringent measures for the banks. one of the reasons why the financial has disappointed is because things are increasingly again too big to fail, and now the question is how to better regulate banks and make banks interest zero-cost rate environment, actually negative rates in many countries already. potential for dislocation because of further tightening in the sense that if the requirements on banks go up, it would be in direct tightening. i think this is potential he what we could see, something next to brexit on the 23rd of june. if you look at banking shares, bank of america, for instance. , so ically it looks weak
9:19 pm
think the share market is telling us that there is potentially more room for downside ahead of us. you said banks needed to be better regulate it. are they badly regulated at the moment or is there too much regulation there? >> a bit of both. it's a bit like what happened with central-bank policy. at one point, it was necessary to do it, now it has a life on its own. how we started this conversation about the federal reserve, look, the biggest danger is that the fed is becoming like the bank of japan. interest rates at these levels and never normalize rates. this is the problem overall. there is a lot of distortion with banks overregulated and common sense is not necessarily applied anymore and everybody is on autopilot, and that has
9:20 pm
negative consequences for the real economy. rishaad: the banks, are they doing their job properly? you have this mountain of thenation on one hand, them being told they have to land. it difficult to add liquidity to the system and do their job. what needs to be sorted out here? >> the underlying issue is that .here is not a lot of demand the economy is slowing around the world. this is the big question with regards to markets. recent weakness we saw in the u.s. economy, is it a soft moving into ae massive recession coming forward? what mr. disagree with trump says, but to ares i would agree with him. number one, the u.s. tax system needs to be reformed. secondly, the probability of a recession is growing. are notwhy the banks
9:21 pm
lending, because they know fundamentally the economy is weak. with the market narrative, it is changing now. time last year, equities rise because of hopes of further stimulus. now they reach the point where that increasingly becomes counterproductive and were more stimulus could add to market selloffs. this is what gold is telling us. gold at $300 announces showing us that the gold market is telling you there is potentially a lot still ahead of us. rishaad: great talking to you as ever. michael price there. >> the stories making headlines around the world. japan, india, and the u.s. have lunch combined naval exercises. the drill highlights andington's pivot to asia concerns about china's growing influence in the region. india is wary and has strengthened ties with the u.s..

rishaad: the boj record stimulus program may have not done much to spur inflation, but it has helped the property market. ts have soared in value. prices could go even higher from here. it reminds me of the 1980's to some extent. >> you are showing your age there. this is one asset class we will be watching.
9:26 pm
it has been a direct beneficiary of this massive asset purchase program. boj started buying them up in 2010. since then, it has gotten very involved, becoming a figurative landlord, one of the largest owners in japan, $3 billion worth of purchases. up 62%driven premiums for japan. payingans investors are a two thirds premium on top of the value of the real estate properties that are in that trust. comparing it to elsewhere in asia come the closest is australia, 32%. and other big markets like singapore, they are trading below value. close to itstting limits of buying bonds, buying equities.

9:31 pm
again, if we move deeper into the numbers, they are not as impressive as they seem. change of 17,009 hundred, much better than expected, 15,000 had been forecast, but all of those gains come from part-time jobs, no full-time jobs gained in the month of may according to this data, and the participation rate has fallen, 64.8%, weaker than expected and weaker than the read we had in april. if you read look at the dollar of movingit is sort sideways, no huge change there, but there are political implications for this number as well. datais the last piece of we were expecting ahead of the july 2 election here. now,ood employment reads strong gdp read is well, so it's likely that malcolm turnbull's government will look to make hay
9:32 pm
out of these numbers, even though that 5.7% figure may hide a slightly larger problem. rishaad: thanks for that. your reaction to that number and looking at the hong kong and shanghai open. what is the aussie dollar doing? 74.21, but we have to put this into context. we are looking at a weak dollar. that is the short of it. we will talk about mixed equity markets in a few moments. emanating from the fed was really about lower rates for longer. that is the simplest way to put it. a strongooking at dollar on the back of a weaker u.s. dollar. quite come back to the session highs we saw midweek.
9:33 pm
have a look at the renminbi. the fixing is a little bit stronger because of the weaker dollar. very interesting, very compelling note here from commerzbank. because of developments from the givesore dovish, this now a lot of central banks in asia, taiwan,donesia, india, basically a window within which to introduce more policy easing, if needed. we are now basically looking at a lesser risk that capital outflows might put further pressure on the currencies. saying is that we could see the pboc cut rates 25 basis points. , three minutes in , hang sengese open

deliberation and a debate coming to an end and india as it relaxes aviation regulations. to be a majored boost for the world's fastest-growing aviation market. it's great news for some carriers. news, but not quite open skies. here's the deal. local carriers can now fly overseas provided they deployed 20 planes or 20% of capacity a local routes. before that, they needed a minimum of 20 aircraft in their fleet and were required to have five years of serving domestic routes. local ventures dan to gain the most. it won't be surprising if they start in testing -- investing in india as well.
9:36 pm
this new policy has been in the making for at least 13 years, considered by successive governments. per prime minister modi finally bit the bullet, meaning greater competition. changing times. are the overseas carrier saying here? ore we heard from airasia singapore airlines? response, if you ask me. singapore airlines and the like say they will study the policy before they say anything. emirates says it aims to address some of the challenges. moveia ceo welcomes the that is a tad critical. he said the minimum fleet requirement of 20 is too many, but he did thank prime minister
9:37 pm
modi for the changes. we are told that airasia plans to build its fleet to 20 from the current six and plans to invest in asia. the sense is that india should embrace open skies and remove all the restrictions. it takes 36 months to get an airline started, 3-4 years to build a fleet of 20 planes, so it will take some time. rishaad: thank you a lot for that in singapore. rally in itsn a bond markets, but investors are catching their breath from the rise. how much debt to these chinese companies really have? >> nonfinancial firms have to repay 2.2 trillion yuan in the second half, a record amount. a lot of this is poorly rated debt. so there are some credit risks

despite the recent bond rally. rishaad: that is a damocles sword actually, but never mind. are these companies able to refinance? that will be key. >> exactly. with the chinese economy approving, -- improving, a lot are expecting an expanded stimulus. we have seen a crackdown on's shadow banking, which we know a lot of these companies rely on for financing. if you look at the pboc credit data they came out yesterday and that financing of corporate bonds was a record low last month and so it does seem like a lot of these distressed borrowers will have a harder time rolling over their debt. rishaad: what does this mean actually for yields in the bond space? some analysts are saying that credit spreads have narrowed recently, but they are set to widen again.
9:39 pm
china only had its first few defaults in recent years, which means the risk premiums have been suppressed for a long time, so it would take a long time for that to normalize. rishaad: thank you for that on this bond issue in china. let's have a look at some other stories we are following. car owners and the u.s. government have been given more time to file settlements in the volkswagen emissions scandal. a federal judge pointed to the highly technical nature of the discussion. they have until noon new york time on june 28 a file that draft agreement. volkswagen admitted that it fixed emissions tests on 11 million cars worldwide. main rival vita $28 billion. didi raised $4.5 billion in a round of funding backed by apple and the mystic investors.

9:50 pm
a lot of that comes from the the intellectual property that lies beneath disney. rishaad: that's one of the thing , you have to keep on being relevant, and that's how with all these other things you mentioned, film deals, etc., it keeps them relevant. does wandaoes -- how build its brand. to decide where they want to fit in the marketplace. he wants to have more locations, but that does not necessarily hold true. the least important thing is location to driving theme parks. they have to find what is that emotional connections they want to make with their consumers and position themselves. i think what we have seen is that demand is pretty in- elastic.
